As much of the United Kingdom was blanketed in cloud, the partial solar eclipse broke through the overcast skies of Birmingham this morning giving a rare and beautiful view of the eclipse.

The solar event is viewable to parts of the Northern Hemisphere, with some lucky enough to observe a 'ring of fire' where the moon blocks all but the edges of the sun.

The UK was only treated to a partial eclipse and most of the country was covered in clouds, meaning a select few got to witness the event.

The next solar eclipse of any kind over Europe will not happen until October 2022.
